China’s national flood control authorities have put in force emergency response measures in preparation for heavy rainfall forecast up to Friday along the Gan, Xiang and Xi rivers in central and southern areas of the country.

It is also the first flood control emergency response launched this summer, with the authorities describing the flood control situation as “grim”.

Torrential rain is expected to hit a vast area of over 1 million sq km, more than one 10th of the country’s territory, in provinces including Guizhou, Hunan, Jiangxi, Zhejiang, Fujian, Guangdong and the Guangxi region, according to the Central Meteorological Administration.
